I have wordpress installed on my local system running fine with custom themes etc. I now want to move the wordpress folders to my clients pc and get the wordpress site hosted. I know how to move it over just not sure how to sort out the hosting. Domain and host have been selected already.

Thanks

Not knowing exactly how you have things setup, in theory youd need to export your local WP database (for any content you have) to the host and copy your theme across.... Ive never done it myself however. But it is something I might be doing in the near future....

FTP the files across, copy the MySQL database as well, update the connection strings and it should work fine.

Not too hard to do.

You will also need to update the database, especially if you did not use the same variables during setup on the local machine as you did on your hosting account.

This is a good document ->http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress although can be a little confusing.  When I move one from my local folder I have to do a search through the DB for "http://localhost" and change it to the correct URL.  This is worst if you have put in hyperlinks in the content which will use the site URL from the DB not from any configuration files.

ALso contact your host if you have problems as they should help you get it working properly, especially with connection strings etc.

Can anyone tell me if this is correct?

Wordpress isnt actually installed in my clients pc? because i have built it i can place all the folders on the hosts server and my client will just have to go:

http:///wp-login.php and up will pop the wordpress dashboard and my client can log in and change content etc?

Who are you hosting through? A lot of providers have scripts within cPanel etc that you can do a one click install of wordpress, then login (to wp-login.php) and import your old blog - though i'm not sure if this just imports posts/comments, or if it brings themes/settings in with it.
